A new 7,600 m² area facility consisting of two all season ice rinks, public locker rooms and showers, men’s and women’s varsity locker rooms, coaches offices, meeting rooms, tack shop and administration support offices.
Engineering services included concept design, construction document production and construction review of the mechanical & electrical systems.
The project was submitted for Natural Resources Canada’s Commercial Building Incentive Program (CBIP) and achieved 35% better efficiency than the Model National Energy Code for Buildings (MNECB) reference building with a predicted annual energy savings of $31,000.00.
Sustainable features of the facility included site location and proximity to public transportation, low flow metered faucets & showers, storm water reclaim for flushing of WCs & urinals, high IAQ performance, energy recovery and third party commissioning.
Key energy efficiency measures include heating boilers with modulating burner control; heat recovery plate heat exchanger in locker room make-up air unit; heat recovery from arena chiller plant that is used for rink slab heating, snow melting, domestic and zamboni water preheat and preheat of locker room make-up air unit; demand control ventilation in office air handling unit; low-e arena ceilings and walls; and high efficiency lighting system.
